Convalescent plasma-mediated resolution of COVID-19 in a patient with humoral immunodeficiency

Academic Article

Abstract

  • An immunodeficient patient with protracted COVID-19 unable to mount a humoral immune response rapidly recovered following transfusion with convalescent plasma. Honjo et al. found that immunotherapy with high-titer neutralizing antibodies was clinically beneficial. However, since neutralizing activity of convalescent plasmas varies widely, units should be tested prior to therapy.
